What is this:
By default VB4 sidebar will be shown only on forum home page. This mod Will display the Sidebar everywhere in the forum. This mod assumes that you already set your sidebar block from "forum blocks manager".

Current Version:
1.5.3 (Free)
2.2.13 (Gold)

Demo:
Latest Technology





Features :
  • Add ESB to Blog (Gold version only).
  • Option to set ESB in blog sidebar (Gold version only).
  • Option to replace blog sidebar by ESB (Gold version only).
  • Option to set blog sidebar width (Gold version only).
  • Show sidebar in the vbcms pages (Gold version only).
  • Rotating Ad system included in the sidebar (Gold version only).
  • Filter Block by usergroups (Gold version only).
  • More options with advance settings of the sidebar (Gold version only).
  • No backlink to our website (Gold version only).
  • The sidebar will be displayed everywhere in the forum.
  • With more than 20 setting you can enable and disable sidebar very easily on any any page.
  • You can hide sidebar in the excluded forums mod options.
  • You can show sidebar for all or show it for non members.
  • Now you don't have to enable sidebar from option. Enabling this mod will enable sidebar everywhere. But you need to set sidebar blocks from "forum blocks manager".
  • All previous bugs have been fixed.
  • The ability to exclude certain usergroups.
  • The ability to turn sidebar off for certain forum styles.
  • The ability to place the side bar on custom pages.
  • The ability to control displaying sidebar when forum is closed.
  • The ability to set different blocks for different forums [ver 1.2].

  • In 1.3.3 you have ability to exclude groups from the above feature that is to be always visible. So that the excluded group members will be able to collapse ESB.
  • In 1.3.4 the vertical collapse button is removed and blocks is forced to by expanded if "Don't hide ESB switch" is set to yes as requested in this post
  • In 1.4.1 pl1 custom html/php block bug and some other bugs were fixed.
  • In 1.4.3 you can set sidebar width and sidebar button top alignment from mod options.

Requested Features [ To Do ] :
  • -

Mod requirements:
  • The mod is tested on default vb style with no other mods. So we gurantee that mod will work on the default vb style with no conflict with other mod.
  • As a courtesy we may make minor fix so the plugin works on styles other than the default but we are not hold to it.
Installation:


1. Download plugin.
Only free ver:If you are using vb4.1.11 or above download the "cssrollup_everywhere_sidebar.xml" and upload "cssrollup_everywhere_sidebar.xml" to /includes/xml directory.

2. Login to your vBulletin admincp.

3. Open "Plugins & Products", and go to "Manage Products".

4. Click on "[Add/Import Product]".

5. Import the product-everywhere_sidebar_xxx.xml file that you download. Make sure you set "allow overwrite" to "yes".
Only free ver:Also if you are updating the product you need to disable then enable (or even un-install then install) the product to let the product knows about the "cssrollup_everywhere_sidebar.xml".

Optional steps for setting different blocks for different forums and pages:

6. Go to mod options
Admincp->Settings->options->EveryWhere Sidebar (ESB) options

7. Go down until you see "Block Configuration Switch" check "yes" and save.

9. Any block you want to hide add its block id with colon on "Filter Blocks by forums" or "Filter Blocks by page" text box in the mod options. For example to hide block_html_7 on all forums except forum id 1 and 2 we will add this "block_html_7:1,2" without qoutes to "Filter Blocks by forums"box; and to hide it in all other pages except faq and calendar we will add this "block_html_7:faq,calendar" without qoutes to "Filter Blocks by pages" box. See picture below

To Adjust sidebar top level:

form admincp

open forumhome.css in the style you want to change or use the master style to effect all styles

change the padding size for #sidebar_container as you wish
eg
padding:50px 0;
Note:In the new vb versions sidebar css has been moved from forumhome.css to separate file called sidebar.css
Most asked question:

Q:I've installed your sidebar mod and it works fine except on the forumhome! The sidebar is showing at the bottom of the page. Any idea how to fix it?

A:It is either due to one of these:
1. you are using a custom style that is changing the forumhome look.
2. You are using a nother mod that is changing the content of froumhome before this ESB.

ESB needs to see this in forumhome
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So to tix this problem you either need to make sure that
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

exist in the correct location or change ESB forumhome plugin to search for a new phrase.

for the latest version 1.4.1+ it looks for

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

so if you are setting new style make sure not to remove or change
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

location to get sidebar in the proper location.

Where to change the margin? I don't see this in options... And in CSS too... all margins (defined in different classes) are vb:math, and I just don't know what to edit to define a right margin.
Could you please tell me what class in in what *.css should I edit...

Thank you.
Scrape that...

Hi - I installed this on my test forum and everything was working fine, however the sidebar widget from DBTech's Forum Live Feed & User Wall does not show up.

Is there any way to fix this or alternatively, is there any way to call the feed in its own page - minus the site header/footer oe just the feed - so I can call it into the sidebar via an ajax include?

ESidebar's code are so f... ugly... btw:

If you're using HTML blocks (especially <li> tag), you could notify that 1.5.0 broke your footer. Here's how to fix this:

Go to Plugins -> Modules, find module "sidebar_global", edit it:

Find
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Okay this has got me stumped. I have vb 4.1.11 and I am unsure of your installation directions.

Do I only need to import the cssrollup_everywhere_sidebar.xml file

<or>

Do I need to get the product-everywhere_sidebar_1.5.zip install that, then import the cssrollup_everywhere_sidebar.xml file?


disregard, figured it out....
